Artificial Gloom

Nobody is really seriously rendered unhappy about something that is going to happen millions and millions of years hence, therefore although it is, of course, a gloomy view to suppose that life will die out, at least I suppose I may say so, although sometimes when I contemplate the things people do with their lives I think it is almost a consolation.
